Today I am 28. So I’ve picked 28 images from over the past few years.

I’ve started with earlier images that you would normally have to look up in the archives, or scroll pages and pages back to get to; More recent ones are down the bottom of the post.  I’ve tried to pick a range of different work, plus some of my favorites – It actually took a bit of effort to weed it down to just 28…. Hmmm, where has all this work come from, I don’t think I realised how much has accumulated over the past few years!  Enjoy.

Brunswick Street Gallery Small Works exhibition is now down, And I have a huge thank you to say to Deb and Riaan for kindly picking up my arts for me while I am skiving off here in Nz.

I painted these paper works at the same time I was working on the BSG canvases.  Though while the canvases ended up with layers of Shellac, resin, gouache and more resin; These only got the initial gouache layer straight on the paper.  I took the masks off these as I wanted to keep them simple, but I think they still need something more…. Wondering about a layer of glossy white Enamel pattern maybe, Though just in a couple of areas.                      Hmmmm…anyone got any input?!?

You can see the finished results of the BSG canvases here : https://vincenteknight.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/toast-x-bsg-small-works-sneak-peek/

I love this candy resin finish, its just so…. Shiny!

So this is a little peek at the six canvases I’ve been working on over the last couple of weeks for the Brunswick Street Gallery small works exhibition coming up at the start of December.

I wanted to do something completely different to the last set of paintings I had up a few weeks ago at Black Cat, Something a bit looser and abstract – drawing inspiration from the colourful piece I recently worked on with Tui, looking at mark making and patterns. Each canvas is built up of thin layers of resin with washes of Gouache and Shellac in between, so that the various marks overlap and float on top of each other. I photographed these with the flash off  so you can see the paintings clearly – The resin is super shiny and highly reflective. The finish reminds me of clear toffee – Promise to put up an angled pic to show the resin a bit better once the next coat is dry.

For some reason when I reduce the size to view as a set, they won’t click to enlarge, so below is a close up of each :

I filled out the submission form while I was over in NZ for Toast and didn’t have my comp w any photos, though at that point I only had the base colours done anyways… I usually don’t name work until it’s finished, so was in a bit of a quandary over doing this for a couple days.  So, heres the question : How do you name six unfinished abstract works? You name them after the vineyards at Toast of course… I like that they are local NZ names, which really only make sense if you have visited those vineyards, preferably all on the same day at Toast – That the names become completely random when in an exhibition in Melbourne. Perfect!
